The second and last part of samplers from Len Faki’s ‘Berghain 03’ mix features two previously unreleased tracks by Edit-Select and Len Faki himself.

Edit-Select starts off with a seething and haunting atmospheric track on the A-side, where the focus remains on small changes in the background. Heavy filtered white noise that steams up from everywhere fills the tracks steady beat with a sense of progression and elevation. Being so blatant in it’s DJ tool sense, the track is really something special and Edit-Select pushes it in and out through the locked groove sense that it’s made of.

As for the B-side, Len Faki transforms his signature sound into something different and fresh. A dub vibe combined with a more technoid groove, very much a like the Radio Slave track ‘Neverending…..’, he pursues a sense of timelessness and a mesmerising feeling throughout the entire length of the track. Of course it features Faki’s well known siren, but it’s placed in such manner that it doesn’t get too much attention from the groove, it just blends into the heavy break and disappears just as fast as it arrived.

Playing this in the right environment and to the right crowd, it’s a winner.
